I had the extreme Pleasure of meeeting Olga Stolbova this week in the town of Campbell River , which is a 200 mile journey form the small villages where I live. Olga provide free hearing test and assesments for people as a registered Hearing instrument practitioner.. I went into her office which is very warm and welcoming and met Olga for the first time. She was very warm and welcoming and her kindly demeanor made it a pleasure to go there. I was there for a hearing test and assesment and Olga was very good and took a lot of time with me before, during and after the test.. we had a lot of laughs as she does indeed have a great sense of humour.
I had a copy of my worldpulse story on me and Olga took an interest. I explained worldpulse to her and story writing etc and digital issues and internet. She had her office assistant make a copy of my story and was very interested in Worlpulse and joining that community. also she was unclear about the digital issues and I said I would be glad to help.
I asked Olga where she was from before the town she now works in and she mentioned she had lived in Alberta . I asked about her background and culture due to her beautiful accent. she is actually from Russia. what an amazing lady to come form Russia to British Columbia and provide such a valuable service for people.
I mentioned to Olga I had studied Russian in High School for 2 years and then started to use the language , she was very happy about this and we had a wonderful visit.
I had to leave but wanted to go to a store near her office she mentioned it was too far to walk and offered me a ride , we went to the store and it was hard to say goodbye to this delighful woman, we hugged and echanged information. I will call her and write her and encourage her to join World Pulse and join the digitial internet community and I hope she will and I will be glad to help her with this in any way I can
